Indexing is very slow after a node is down in a cluster

Hi Guys,

I am new to elastic search and using mostly default settings.
We had a cluster failure and after
rebalancing the speed was very slow, often resulting in timeouts. When the
cluster returned,
the speed went back to normal. Is this just an inevitable consequence of
losing a cluster,
or should speeds be comparable to before the failure after rebalance?

Do we need to change any settings which can improve the performance in this
